Barrhead and Westlock RCMP were asking some residents to evacuate due to an out of control fire.

Police say the evacuation affected those living between Township Road 592 and 594 and Range Road 15 and 24.

“Residents which were evacuated due to the fire are now able to return to their homes,” Mounties said in a release.

An area around Range Road 14 and 15 is not passable as it has turned into a staging area for fire services and the RCMP.

“Expect this closure for at least one day.”
